O my mind,
You and I have been together
For a very long time.
But now I want to leave you
And go beyond you.
Do you want to know why,
After all these years,
I want to discontinue our association?
Only one reason:
You do not have soulful confidence.
What you have is either
Ridiculous over-confidence
Or confidence-famine.
I simply don't want either of the two.
Sri Chinmoy, O my mind, Agni Press, 1988
